Static Mixer: Turbulent Flow

Turbulent flow in pipes begins at Reynolds (Re) > 2,300. This flow pattern is characterized by an exceptional radial exchange because of the turbulences. Different geometries can be chosen to achieve the best mix possible.

BE.ST MV

To mix and disperse low viscous fluids, gas-liquid contact and gas-gas applications.

Each mixing element is a specially designed rigid geometric structure which divides the flow and recombines it into a geometric sequence. The re-directed fluid follows the geometry of the channels in the motionless mixing device resulting in the fusion of the elements.

The MV/MVL mixing elements consist of stacked, corrugated sheets oriented to create a large number of intersecting flow channels.

Fluid entering the mixer is divided and redirected along one of the many flow channels.

The combination of layer generation and the large number of flow channels per element ensures thorough mixing, and is responsible for the short length of the BE.ST mixer. The mixing efficiency remains constant over a wide range of flow rates and viscosities.

BE.ST MH

The well-known helical mixer has very good mixing results in diameters up to DN50 and for easy-to-mix systems. The low pressure drop, easy cleaning and installation are the main advantages of the MH mixer.

BE.ST MX3

The MX3 static mixer produces turbulence with a high Re-number for a superb mixing effect.The Re-number should be higher than 10,000 which makes the MX3 the best choice for constant flows of thin media or gasses. Its’ simple geometry makes it the best choice and is reasonably priced.
